This exhibition was due to take place during Glasgow International 2020, 23 April – 10 May, which has been postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis. The festival will be re-staged in 2021 with dates to be announced.
Over the eighteen days of Glasgow International, eighteen artists are contributing existing work to a new publication and presenting a day-long intervention at Market Gallery, transforming the artist-run space into a site for expanded reading.
The gallery invited nine Glasgow-based artists; they in turn invited a further nine. The result is a celebration of friendship in its broadest sense – as the company we choose to keep and the texts we read and return to – and a challenge to curatorial control. By radically broadening the pool of invited artists, Market Gallery hope to help level the playing field and support the Glasgow art community in a considerate way. Visitors can spend time with the new publication and other selected texts in a hospitable, daily-changing setting.
